Why is it only some of my contacts come up when I compose a message and not all. I hate to have to go to my contacts, scroll to find them and send a message that way. How can i make messaging "see" everyone? I can type a name that is in my contacts list but no number will show with it.
This actually happened to me, I found an answer from another fourm on this site. I don't know if it happens to you, but I'd type some names and they'd show up in the "to" field, but others wouldn't. What it is is that the numbers that do show up, you have that number saved as mobile in your contacts. The ones that don't show up, you don't have set in mobile. So if John Smith isn't showing up when you type it, you need to go to contacts, find that person, press and hold --> edit contact --> change home/work to mobile --> save. Then it'll show up.

Good luck.
